3 carat diamonds | The power and beauty of large diamonds!

When it comes to diamonds a 1.5-carat diamond is close to average, a 2-carat diamond is amazing in its own right but a 3-carat diamond is nothing less than breathtaking. Partly due to its price tag such a stone symbolizes power, luxury and eternity. Large diamonds are available in all shapes and cuts and can be set in a ring or a necklace. 

What is a large diamond?

The weight and value of a diamond are estimated in carats. One carat equals 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. Most common diamonds are 1 carat or less. For example, a solitary ring is usually between 0,5 and 1 carat. Large diamonds are considered to be 3 carats and more. A 3-carat diamond is rare and valuable which makes it a good investment as well as an outstanding gift.

The biggest diamond in the world is the famous Cullinan Diamond. At 3106,75 carats this diamond is the largest rough gem-quality diamond ever found. The Cullinan Diamond was cut into 105 diamonds and is now part of King Edward’s sceptre in the Tower of London.

The price of a 3-carat diamond

The larger the diamond the rarer it is. As the carat size of a diamond increases the diamond price increases exponentially. Fewer than one in a million rough stones are large enough to produce a finished 1-carat diamond. So, as carat weight increases you will typically pay more not only in total but on a price-per-carat basis as well.
